Yard of the Month

Sarinda's Magical Yard

I'm on my neighborhood's Yard of the Month committee. I and the other members of the committee chose Sarinda's house for the May Yard of the Month in Edgemere Park. I have to say that I'm scooping the neighborhood newsletter on this one. You are seeing it here first.

Sarinda's home is another one of the neighborhood's beautiful tudors.

Do you see the sweet kitties sitting on the porch steps? On of them begged me to pick her up and then got mad and started hissing and scratching. Turns out she craves attention but doesn't know what to do with it once she gets it. (I know exactly how she feels, silly puss).

Sarinda believes in making her home look like a party is always going on. She has a constant rotating display of lanterns on her front covered porch. When you drive by her house at night the deodora cedar in front always sparkles with golden twinkle lights as does the porch. It truly does look like there is always a party going on at her house.

Sarinda's backyard 

Sarinda proudly announces that she's the kind of girl that keeps her Christmas lights up all year long. The afternoon we visited with her...she had them all turned on for us. This is making me rethink my clear twinkle lights in my own backyard. Maybe I should do multi-colored.

I have to say, stopping by Sarinda's was a lovely end to a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We all decided to do it again soon. Sitting on her magically decorated front porch was just too much fun. Sarinda declared..."I'm proud to be a porch whore!" too! Me too!

I so covet that shaggy fir-type tree in her front yard. And the porch - - I want a porch. (said in a whine, with a pout)

Another gorgeous house in your neighborhood. You're a lucky girl to be surrounded by all that beauty.

Beautiful home and yard. Love the whimsical lanterns! There is a cat like that in my neighborhood. Her name is Patches and she comes to visit me every day and will rub against my legs and acts like she wants me to pet her. I learned the hard way to go ahead and pet her but make it pretty darn quick (count to 45) and NEVER attempt to pick her up! This is the way we have remained friends over the past few years.
